Anya Taylor-Joy secretly married her boyfriend, Malcolm McRae: Complete story here!
Anya Taylor-Joy has jumped into Hollywood's latest penchant for hush-hush weddings. After Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck,Elizabeth Olsen and Robbie Arnett, Anya is the newest star to wrap her nuptials secretly. Best recognized for her Golden Globe-winning portrayal of Elizabeth Harmon in the 2020 eleven Emmy-winning Netflix series The Queen's Gambit, Joy has emerged to be one of the most promising actors of the generation.
Anya-Josephine Marie Taylor-Joy was born on April 16, 1996, in Miami, Florida. Anya made her television debut with a minor role in the series Endeavour. She broke into the industry with a starring role as Thomasin in the 2015 supernatural horror film The Witch. Ever since her rise to prominence with The Queen's Gambit, Anya's career and love life has been subjects of interest amongst her legion of fans, but sadly the latter has always been a concealed affair.
Anya Taylor-Joy is married!
Sources have confirmed that the Netflix star has married her boyfriend, Malcolm McRae, in an intimate courthouse wedding. Anyone following The Witch actress on Instagram would know that she has been pretty eloquent in expressing her love, often steaming, for McRae. But the news of the duo's hush-hush marriage is, so far, just a swirling claim made by multiple sources.

The duo's alleged wedding comes almost a month after Joy and Malcolm sparked engagement rumors in June. Joy was spotted flaunting a shiny engagement ring while getting off a private jet in Sydney, Australia. "She bounded off the plane and then seemed to flash the ring at her driver before getting in the car," an onlooker said.
An insider revealed Taylor and Malcolm tied the knots in the USA before leaving for Australia, where Joy is filming for her upcoming Furiosa, starring Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. And surely, the alleged husband-wife duo was spotted enjoying a casual day out in Sydney on Monday. Joy and Malcolm have been selectively secretive about their relationship.

Although the pair's social media pages efficiently give an insight into their heated romance, the duo, however, has been reticent in publicly speaking about their relationship. Sources say they have been dating for the past few years. An insider revealed the loved-up twosome are planning to hold a bigger, official wedding after they return to the States.
Who is Anya Taylor-Joy's husband, Malcolm McRae?
Joy's now-husband McRae may be the lesser-known star of the two, but he is a star in his own right, with a growing profile as a musician. Malcolm is a 28-year-old musician and an aspiring actor. His IMDB bio cites his expertise and interest to be in guitar and piano, and pop, folk, rockabilly, rock and musical theatre, in the category of music genre. He is a member of pop-rock duo More, the other member being Kane Ritchotte.

A native of Alabama, Malcolm seemingly doesn't boast a celebrity background, considering that he was discovered at the age of 12 at the talent competition AMTC among 1100 other contestants. He has acting credits in the short films Brotherly and Howdy!. McRae's More band is signed to Warner Records, and last year the duo released their two-part EP 1/2.

Fans' prying eyes turned to Malcolm last year in May when the relatively oblivious musician was pictured making out with the Golden Globe winner in New York City. Not long after, The Queen's Gambit actress hinted at having a new partner. "I've finally found someone who will happily sit in silence with me reading. We're basically 80 years old and seven at the same time, and it works well," the actress said.
Anya Taylor-Joy's relationship history!
"There's a beauty in being anonymous," the Peaky Blinders star had said when she was asked about the high walls that envelop her love life. She added, "So I think the idea of someone being interested in me - I'm quite a private person - is a bit daunting, but I try not to think about it." Despite being a reserved person, Anya's few relationships or alleged relationships have made it to the headlines in the past.

In 2016, years before she became a well-recognized face, Anya was linked to Irish actor Eoin Macken, known for his credits in Resident Evil, Killing Jesus, and Centurion. As per sources, the duo had a brief romance after meeting on the sets of their short film Crossmaglen. The two never commented on their relationship, but the two were even rumored to have been engaged at one point after Anya sported a rock on her finger in a public appearance.
The New York-born actress was linked with photographer Ben Seed in early 2020 after the two were spotted strolling around in London. "They make a lovely couple," a source had reported. But again, we didn't hear the beginning or the end of the supposed relationship. The blonde beauty was last rumored to be dating her Last Night in Soho co-star Matt Smith.
